Marie-Adélaïde, Grand Duchess of Luxembourg (1894-1924) who remained unmarried and childless.
She followed her father on the throne and was the first sovereign of Luxembourg. Because of her rather forced relationship with the German occupiers, during the WWI, she had to abdicate. Marie went to Italy, to join the Carmelites, later the Little Sisters of the Poor.
She had a poor health and died of influenza in Hohenburg Castle in Bavaria 1924.

On 6 November 1919 in Luxembourg, she married His Royal Highness Felix of Bourbon, Prince of Parma, a cousin on each of their mothers' side (both were grandchildren of King Miguel of Portugal). With the marriage, their lineal descent was raised in status from Grand Ducal Highness to Royal Highness.
They had 6 children:

Princess Antoinette "Toni" (1899-1954)
Antonia became the second wife of Rupprecht, the last Crown Prince of Bavaria. They were engaged on 26 August 1918 and married on 7 April 1921 at Hohenburg Castle. Antonia and Rupprecht were forced into exile in Italy in 1939, becasue of Rupprechts antagonism to the Nazi-Regime.
From here, they moved to Hungary. When Germany occupied Hungary in October 1944, Antonia and her children were captured, while Rupprecht, still in Italy, evaded arrest. They were imprisoned at Sachsenhausen (!) In early April 1945, they were moved to the Dachau concentration camp. Although liberated that same month, the imprisonment greatly impaired Antonia's health, and she died nine years later, at Lenzerheide, Switzerland. Horrible, just horrible.  No

Antonia and Rupprecht had 6 children:

Prince Heinrich Franz Wilhelm of Bavaria (1922-1958). Married Anne Marie de Lustrac (1927-1999). No issue.
Princess Irmingard Marie Josefa of Bavaria (b. 1923). Married her cousin Prince Ludwig of Bavaria (1913-2008) and has issue.
Princess Editha Marie Gabrielle Anna of Bavaria (born 1924). Married first Tito Tommaso Maria Brunetti (1905-1954) and second Prof. Gustav Christian Schimert (1910-1990). Has issue by both.
Princess Hilda Hildegard Marie Gabriele of Bavaria (1926-2002). Married Juan Bradstock Edgar Lockett de Loayza (1912-1987) and has issue.
Princess Gabriele Adelgunde Marie Theresia Antonia of Bavaria (born 1927). Married Carl, Duke of Croÿ, Lord of Dülmen, and has issue.
